Course description

This programme aims to provide you with knowledge and understanding of substantive intellectual property law in its European and international context and to equip you with the theoretical framework necessary to analyse critically the intellectual property law regime. It also aims to encourage students to develop research skills in intellectual property law. It is a self-contained twelve month programme for those whose training in legal techniques has equipped them to proceed directly to the study of postgraduate level subjects within the scope of the programme. Its focus is on UK law and policy within a European, International and comparative context. It provides a thorough grounding in substantive intellectual property law and the economic, social and theoretical basis of the subject.

Open days

The Postgraduate Open Day will take place in November 2014 on campus. Please check our website for details.

The School of Law will be represented at the Law Fair at Manchester Central on the 18 th of November 2014 from 12.30 to 4pm, if you wish to speak to us on the informal basis.

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • LLM (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £6,300
    International students (per annum): £14,000

The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees. Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.

Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.
